Hey ladies. I'd like to know whether you have had better service from a male or female obgyn. What I mean is which s_x have you found to be more open to unique pregnancy situations and more likely to use further testing to figure out what's going on (like if you are having pregnancy symptoms, but are having lighter/shorter periods and/or neg urine tests.)

Midwives... Most doctors are so black & white about things.. it doesn't matter how you feel, it's the test results that matter most type of things. Midwives are really in tune to how you actually feel & what's going with you, not just the test results..

I've had excellent care from both men and women OB's. The practice I am with now, surprisingly, I find the men to be a little more sympathetic and open to what I have to say than the women. The truth is I prefer a woman physician to a man but in this case it worked out the other way around. You have to be open!

My Dr's are a part of a medical group where there are 2 male and 2 female Drs. I have found that they all have different styles, but they listen to what I say and are willing to do whatever it takes to help. At my office, the men listen more and the women seem to be in a hurry. Just my experience. I don't know if that's a gender thing though.

I've had both male and female, and I found the male doctors more caring. The women made me feel like a piece of meat.

Male OB/Gyn. Definitely.

Male OB/GYN. Very thorough and very caring.


Sandra - April 20

I have a male OB and he is great. He was the one to tell us the bad news when we lost our previous pg, and was very sympathetic etc.

To be honest I prefer a male doctor over a female doctor.They seem to be more caring and thorough. Every woman doctor that I have met are major b**tches.
